Anyone else having difficulty gaining access ? I get a message that the site is not providing a security certificate, or something ?

No problem for me on an iPad and Safari. Normally Safari screams bloody murder when it find an old certificate.

What handsfree said. Alison said the DNS pointers were corrupted. Have you tried clearing your DNS cache?

All back to normal now, don't you just LOVE computers ?

No doubt I was hasty in rushing off with my laptop to get it 'repaired', but, knowing now about the TalkTalk outage, any analytics that I might have carried out would have drawn the same conclusion -a fault with the computer - maybe a virus.
As I couldn't access the internet I couldn't search for information - though if I had checked the lights on the router that might have indicated 'no service' (M$ fault-finding checker didn't find any fault - other than DNS Server not found).
My concern was that, with a busy weekend approaching, I had limited time to get the laptop fixed, so I went out to catch the next available bus to town - I even went with just the laptop and the power supply - no bag to carry it.

Had it been a Sunday I would have had to wait - and TalkTalk restored service after a couple of hours . . .

Having researched DNS Server topics I am sightly wiser now, and should the same thing happen again I would react differently.

I suppose it adds to life's experiences and knowledge.

Wiser, but 45 poorer . . .

45 to tell me that that was no fault found - and to wipe my passwords and install a version of Firefox that is incompatible with my 'diary' that holds all my appointments for months ahead (now sorted with an uninstall and an install of a earlier version).
